Southern Women Have a Knack for Reading Facial Expressions
Mama’s got a knack for sizing people up and getting a good read on the situation at hand. Actually, all Southern women do. It’s just that Mama has raised it to an art form. Even so, we’ve got faith in you. Take a long, perceptive look at the expressive women in our photo gallery and tell us what you believe they’re thinking or saying. (You might want to tie on your hostess apron and give yourself a spritz of Shalimar just to get into the proper frame of mind.) Mama has already shared her take on each one, and we have to say, she’ll be tough to beat. But assuming YOUR Mama raised you right (why, of COURSE she did!), you should be able to give OUR Mama a run for her money. So pour yourself a stout cup of coffee, prop your feet up, and have a go at it by sharing your favorite photo on Facebook and commenting with what you think Mama is saying.

Merciful heaven, is that MY DAUGHTER wearing white shoes after Labor Day? TELL ME I’M HALLUCINATING!!!!!!!
Mama the Junior League President
And so, my fellow Junior Leaguers, if you will support me as your president, I believe we can rid our town—dare I dream it—rid our entire county—of permanent botanicals (fake flowers).
Mama the Accessories Editor
My dear, a fascinator should fascinate, not perplex.
Mama the Beauty Queen
Maybe if I freshen up long enough, they’ll all go home.
Mama the Matchmaker
How interesting—your new beau has a double major in astronomy and geography. Tell me, what do sea captains make these days?
Mama the Homemaker
Mama might need an adult beverage when Daddy gets home.
Mama the Doting Aunt
Looks like somebody took after his father’s side of the family, bless his heart.
